Time for a Hug by Phillis Gershator & Mim Green...R&G!

It is no secret that I a book lover.  Reading is one of my favorite hobbies and it is one I hope I am successfully passing on to my children.  We have lots of old favorites in our home but I am always on the lookout for new favorites.  Our latest favorite? Time for a Hug by Phillis Gershator & Mim Green (out this month from Sterling Publishing).  This delightful story is the perfect anytime read.  Here is the scoop...

A hug feels good.
Let's hug again.
We'll hug at nine.
We'll hug at ten.
When is it time for a hug? Anytime! This feel-good picture book assures kids there's plenty of love to go around-the-clock.

From the moment Little Bunny wakes up in the morning until the moon comes out and the stars shine, every hour includes a warm hug from Big Bunny. Whether they bake or build, bike or hike, a caring hug always feels just right.


This is a book that is generous with love, and full of the sweetest illustrations you've ever seen.



This book is ADORABLE!!  From 8 am until 8 pm we follow Little Bunny and Big Bunny throughout their day while they do all the things parents and children do together....peppered with lots of hugs in between.  From getting dressed in the morning to playing blocks and ball in the afternoon and a bath at night, the authors cover all the fun to be had throughout the day while always reminding parents and children alike that it is always a good time for a hug.  The illustrations (done by the very talented David Walker) are the perfect accompaniment to the story.  They are soft and sweet and expressive.  There are so many things I enjoy about Time for a Hug.  First I loved the illustrations.  Second, I really enjoyed how the authors demonstrated times with their activities throughout the day in a way easy for little ones to relate to.  Lastly, and maybe most importantly, I especially love the message within the pages....hug your little ones often.  This book is a new favorite and one I am happy to recommend!  Pick up your copy today on Amazon... I am so pleased to tell you that my friends at Sterling Publishing are offering one lucky RBM reader a copy of Time for a Hug!
